Patient Forum

The CyberKnife Patient Forum is designed to provide a place for people who have been diagnosed with cancer, their family and friends, to exchange useful information and provide support to one another. The Forum may also help people find answers to questions they have about the CyberKnife treatment experience. Accuray strives to facilitate these exchanges and encourage discussions. Recently we have experienced some aggressive or inappropriate spam postings. We are diligently working to resolve this issue and thank you in advance for your patience.

My father had recurrence cancer on pancreas with changes on liver (suspect on liver mets). He had Whipple before 20 months becuase he had Ampullary adenocarcinom, but it happend recurrence . I want to know, how much Cyberknife can help for PANCREAS RECURRENCE AND LIVER METS. Could it be cured, is there any case of people that had this ????

It is unlikely that he can be cured, and in this situation our results have been discouraging enough that we no longer use Cyberknife. Chemotherapy is a better palliative option in most cases. THere may be exceptions and you can certainly get him to see the nearest Ck center
